Stats NZ is developing Indicators Aotearoa New Zealand to track New Zealand’s progress. The set of indicators will go beyond economic measures, such as gross domestic product, to include well-being and sustainable development.
The indicators will build on international best practice and will be tailored to New Zealand by including cultural and te ao Māori perspectives. They will enable the government, councils, businesses, communities, and individuals to make choices around well-being and sustainability.
Stats NZ is working with the Treasury to ensure Indicators Aotearoa New Zealand aligns with the Treasury's Living Standards Framework.
Indicators Aotearoa New Zealand will be delivered by Stats NZ, and will support the government's ambition to use a well-being approach to strategic decision-making.
The indicators will inform a range of domestic and international reporting, including reporting against implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
